give me shelter at Your reddish feet.
2. I gave up everything to approach Your feet. I take shelter at Your
cooling feet.
3. I place three handsful of water and sesame at the funeral of my
past emotional attachemnt to my kinsmen. Now I am attached to You
alone. Please give me shelter at Your feet.

and give me protection in the shade of Your feet.

Song 130 (Çré-räga)

deha prema-sudhä-rasa rahuka ghoñaëä
4. kamala jiniyä tomära çétala caraëa
bäsu ghoña deha chäyä täpita e jana

1. O Lord Gauräìga, my golden treasure! How much have I yearned to


attain You!
2. I do not say that anyone else is my shelter. Please give me shelter
at the soles of Your feet.
3. How can the moon be equal to Your glorious face? Please give me
the nectar of love for You. Please declare that I am Yours.
4. Your cooling feet defeat the lotus flowers. Please give the shade of
Your feet to Väsu Ghoña, who suffers in the heat of materialistic life.

Song 131 (Kedära-räga)


-

1. gauräìgacända hera nayanera koëe


çaraëa la-inu tomära çétala caraëe
2. diyächi tomäre däya ämära keha nä-i
tumi nä dayä karile yäba käre öhä-i
3. prabhu nityänanda karaha karuëä

çuniyächi dayära öhäkura dekhuka saàsäre
7. gauräìga nitä-i more nä kara nairäça
dante tåëa dhari kahe narahari däsa

1. O Lord Gauräìgacandra, please glance at me from the corner of


Your eye. I take shelter of Your cooling feet.
2. Everything I possess I give to You. I keep nothing for myself. If You
do not give Your mercy to me, where shall I go to take shelter?
3. O Lord Nityänanda, please give Your mercy to me. This poor,
fallen, distraught person calls out to You.
4. In the past You delivered many sinners. Now You will not deliver
them? Please show all the worlds that even now You will deliver the
sinners.
5. If I cannot attain Your mercy I will weep in great anguish. In the
past You freely gave the gioft of ecstatic spiritual love. Indeed, You
begged everyone in the world to please accept it.
6. Please show Your mercy and deliver me. I have heard of your great
mercy. O Lord, please cast Your glance of mercy on me in this world of
birth and death.
7. O Lord Gauräìga! O Lord NItäi! Please do not destroy my hopes!
Placing a blade of straw between his teeth, Narahari däsa speaks these
words.
Song 132 (Tuòé-räga)

1. eka bära karuëä kara caitanya nitä-i


mora sama pätaké ära tri-bhubane nä-i
2. muïi ati müòha-mati mäyära naphara
e-i saba päpe mora tanu jara jara
3. mleccha adhama yata chila anäcäré

4. açeña päpera päpé jagä-i mädhä-i
tä-sabäre uddharila tomära du-bhä-i
5. locana bale muïi adhame dayä naila kene
tumi nä karile dayä ke karibe äne

1. O Lord Caitanya and Lord Nitäi, please be merciful to me this time.


In the three worlds there is no sinner like me.
2. I am a great fool. I have been Mäyä's servant. Every sin fills my
body.
3. My sins are more weighty and grave than the sins of all the
mlecchas, than all who are falen and ill-behaved.
4. You delivered the two brotheers Jagäi and Mädhäi even though
they had committed every possible sin.
5. Locana däsa says: I am very fallen. Why will You not give mercy to
me? If You will not give mercy to me, then where will You find a better
candidate for your mercy?

Song 133 (Dhanaçé-räga)


-

1. (Refrain) gauräìga patita-päbana tuyä näma


kali-jéba yata ächila kåta-pätaké
de-oli sabe nija-öhäma
2. ä-caëòäla abadhi tohäri guëe kändaye
prema-pulake nähi ora
hari-näma-sudhä-rase jaga-jana pürala
dina rajané rahu bhora
3. bidyä kula dhana mada yada ächila bipada
chäòiyä tohari guëa gäya
nä dekho päñaëòa jana sabhä-i uttama mana
saìkértane gaòägaòi yäya
4. yadi bä ächaye keha açeña päpera deha
nä mäne nä çune gorä-guëa
ballabha-däsera kathä marame marama byathä
mukhe tära de-o käli cüëa

1. (Refrain) O Lord Gauräìga, You bear the name Patita-pävana


(purifier of the fallen). All the sinners of Kali-yuga You give shelter in
Your own spiritual abode.
2. Including even the caëòälas, everyone weeps with love for You.
The hairs of their bodies stand erect. Their love for You has no end. The
people of the world are plunged in the nectar of Lord Hari's holy names.
Day and night they are overcome with ecstatic spiritual love.
3. Shunning the calamity that is pride in material education, fame,
and wealth, everyone sings Your glories. No blasphemers are anywhere
to be seen. Everyone is saintly at heart. Overcome by ecstasy in
saìkértana, everyone rolls on the ground.
4. If anyone remains with sins still in his body, that person must not
have heard or honored Lord Gaura's glories. Vallabha däsa says: Such a
person feels torment in his heart of hearts. Such a person finds black
dust in his mouth.

Song 134 (Dhanaçé-räga)


-

1. (Refrain) gauräìga pätaké uddhära karuëäya


sädhu mukhe çuni ämi patita-päbana tumi
uddhäriyä leha nija päya
2. roga-çokamaya haya biñama biñaya-bhaya
paòiyä rahilum mäyä-jäle
ke hena karuëä jana täre käre nibedana
uddhära pä-iba kata käle
3. çarérera mäjhe yata saba haila vairimata
keha kära niñedha nä mäne

4. sädhu-saìga nä karinu äpani äpana khä-inu
satata kumati-saìga-doñe
daçane dhariyä tåëa kare e-i nibedana
akiïcana e ballabha-däse

1. (Refrain) O Lord Gauräìga! O kind savior of the sinners! From the


saointly devotees' mouths I heard that You are called Patita-pävana (the
purifier of the fallen), that You deliver the sinners and give them the gift
of pure love for You.
2. I have fallen into this fearful horrible world filled with sufferings
and diseases. I stay in Mäyä's trap. O Lord, who is merciful like You? I
appeal to You: Please deliver me! How much time must pass before I am
delivered?
3. I am trappeed in this material body. Now all my enemies assemble
and attack me. Who will stop them? I do not know. Hearing of torments
in Yamaräja's realm, I tremble in fear. Alas, still I will not use my ears to
hear of Lord Hari.
4. I do not associate with devotees. I wish only my own personal
benefit. Always I associate with wicked-hearted people. Poverty-stricken
Vallabha däsa places a blade of grass between his teeth and makes this
appeal before You, O Lord.

Song 135 (Suha-i-räga)


-

1. äre mora äre mora gauräìga gosäïi


déne dayä toma binä kare hena nä-i
2. e-i ta brahmäëòa mäjhe yata reëu präya
ke gaëibe päpa mora gaëana nä yäya
3. manuñya durlabha janma nä ha-ibe ära
tomä nä bhajiyä kainu bhäëòera äcära
4. hena prabhu nä bhajinu ki gati ämära
äpanära mukhe diläma jwalanta aìgära
5. kena bä ächaye präëa ki sukhe lägiyä
ballabha däsiyä kena nä gela mariyä

1. O! O! O Lord Gauräìga! O my master! Who but You is merciful to


the poor fallen souls? No one is merciful like You.
2. Someone may be able to count all the atoms in the universe, but
who can count all my sins? My sins are beyond counting.
3. I will not get this rare human birth again. I did not worship You. I
tried only to cheat others.
4. O Lord, I did not worship You. What will become of me? Into my
own mouth I tossed a glowing coal.
5. Why do I live? What happiness will I find here? Why does Vallabha
däsa not die?

Song 136 (Suha-i-räga)


-

1. gaura pahuà nä bhajiya manu


prema-ratana dhana heläya häränu
2. adhane yatana kari dhana teyäginu
äpanära karama-doñe äpani òubinu
3. biñama biñaya biña satata khä-inu
gaura-kértana-rase magana nä hainu
4. sat-saìga chäòiyä kainu asata biläsa

5. emana gauräìgera guëe nä kändila mana
manuñya durlabha janma haila akäraëa
6. kena bä ächaye präëa ki sukha lägiyä
ballabha däsiyä kena nä yäya mariyä

1. I did not worship Lord Gaura. The precious jewel of ecstatic


spiritual love I carelessly threw away.
2. I renounced that spiritual wealth. I struggled to become a spiritual
pauper. Now I am plunged into a misfortune I created by my own
actions.
3. I always drink the horrible deadly poison of material sense
gratification. I will not dive into the nectar of chanting Lord Gaura's
glories.
4. I spurn the association of saintly devotees. I sport with evil
persons. That is why I am now bound by the ropes of karma and the
noose of karma is now slipped around my neck.
5. My heart does not weep when it hears Lord Gaura's glories. This
rare human birth has been useless to me.
6. Why do I continue to live? What happiness will I find in this kind of
life? Why does this Vallabha däsa not die.

Song 137 (Suha-i-räga)


-

1. dayära prabhu mora nabadwépa-candra


prema-sindhu abatära änanda-kanda
2. abatari nija prema kari äswädana
se-i prema diyä prabhu tarila bhubana
3. patita durgati jane bilä-ila tähä
päträpätra bicära nä-i muïi çuni ihä
4. e-i tarasäya päpé kare nibedane
e rädhämohana mäge tomära caraëe

1. My master is the moon of Navadvépa. He is the Lord of mercy. He


is the root of spiritual bliss. He is an ocean of ecstatic spiritual love
descended to this world.
2. Descending to this world, He relished the sweet taste of ecstatic
spiritual love. He freely gave away that love to others. in this way He
delivered all the world.
3. He gave away that love. He gave it to the fallen misled people. He
did not consider who was a fit candidate to receive and who was not.
This I have heard.
4. A certain sinner now begs to be delivered. O Lord, Rädhämohana
däsa falls at Your feet. He places his request before You.

Song 138 (Kämoda-räga)


-

1. bhakta-gaëa-çré-caraëe mora e-i nibedane


sabe äçirbäda kara more
caitanya baliba mukhe caitanya baliba sukhe
täre bhaji janma-janmäntare
2. çré-guru-caraëa-padma biñaya äçraya sadma

3. käla-sarpa-bhayaìkara premänanda-héna nara
anätha òäkiche gaura-hari
prema-däsa ageyäne premämåta de-i däne
kåpä kara ätma-sätha kari

1. I place a request before the glorious feet of the devotees. O


devotees, please bless me. Please bless me that my mouth will chant
the name Caitanya, that I will always be delighted to chant the name
Caitanya, and that I will worship Lord Caitanya birth after birth.
2. Bless me that I will take shelter of my spiritual master's lotus feet,
and that his feet will be my goal in life and death. Bless me that
Rämacandra däsa will be my master, Ramacandra who took shelter of
Jähnavä's feet. Bless me that I will consider association with his disciples
to be my very life.
3. A certain person terrified of the snake of time, a person who does
not know spiritual bliss and spiritual love, a person without a master or
a shelter, calls out "Gaura-Hari!" O Lord, please be merciful to that
person, the fool Prema däsa. Please give him the nectar of ecstatic
spiritual love. Please accept him as one of Your associates.

Song 139 (Baräòé-räga)

1. Hari! Hari! Will I ever attain the condition where the hairs of my
body stand erect of I say the name, Gauraìga!"
2. When will tears stream from my eyes when I say, Nitäi!" When will
I become wild with ecstasy when I say, "Advaita!"
3. When, calling out, "Caitanya! Nitäi! Advaita! O my masters!", will I
fall unconscious to the ground.
4. When, hearing the Lord's holy names, will I regain consciousness,
jump up, and roar, "Gauräìga!"
5. Çré Nandakumära (Lord Kåñëa and Çrématé Våñabhänusutä
(Çrématé Rädhäräëé) enjoyed many pastimes in Våndävana.
6. When will I gaze and gaze at all those pastime-places? When,
remembering Their pastimes, will I fall to the ground and weep?
7. When will I see the räsa-dance circle? When, that pastime
suddenly manifest in my heart, will I fall unconscious?
8. Prema däsa says: When will I renounce this world and follow the
path of devotion Lord Gauräìga taught? When will that day come?

1. Hari! Hari! When will Lord Nitäi be merciful to me? When will
material desires flee far away from me?
2. When, wearing the garments of a beggar, will I live in Våndävana?
When will I see Çyäma-kuëòa and Rädhä-kuëòa with my own eyes?
3. When, attaining the shade of the Vaàçé-väöa tree, will I feel my life
filled with cooling bliss? When, at the foot of Govardhana Hill, will I roll
on the ground?
4. When will I give up this human body made of mäyä's illusions?
When, attaining the form of a follower of the gopés, will I serve the feet
of the Divine Couple?
5. When will I take shelter of Çré Rüpa-maïjaré? When, standing at
her side, will I fan the Divine Couple with a camara whisk?
6. When will give the Divine Couple a sitting place on a single throne.
When will I place a single flower garland around Their necks?
7. When, now become a baggar, will I wander in Vrndavana? When
will I eat by going house to house and begging like a madhukari.
8. Prema däsa says: When will I become fortunate in these ways?
When, calling out, "Gauräìga!", will I leave this body made of sins?

1. (Refrain) Hari! Hari! When will I become fortunate? When will I see
Lord Gaura enjoy pastimes in Nadéyä with His associates?
2. When will I fill my eyes with the sight of my Lord tasting the nectar
of dancing in kértana on the Gaìgä's banks? When will this long-
cherished desire be fulfilled?
3. When will I see Lord Gaura sitting ona throne in Çréväsa's house?
Standing at His right, Lord Nitäi will hole a parasol over Lord Gaura's
head. Gadädhara Paëòita will stand at Lord Gaura's left.
4. Whoever goes there will see Lord Gaura's moonlike face. The hairs
on that person's body will stand erect. That person will attain the
ecstasy of spiritual love.
5. When, called by Mother Çacé, will I attain many handsful of
remnants from Lord Gaura's meal? When will Ramananda joyfully gaze
at Lord Gaura? Then Rämänanda's two eyes will bear fruit.

1. (Refrain) Alas! Alas! What thing has fate brought me? It brought
me something useless like a pile of ashes. When Lord Gaura manifested
His pastimes I was not born. I am the lowest, the most sinful.
2. I did not see Lord Gauracandra. I did not see Lord Nityänanda. I did
not see Lord Advaita. I did not see the feet of Narahari Sarakära
Öhäkura. I did not see Çréväsa and Gadädhara.
3. Because of my past karma, fate has written that I would not see
any of them. Why was I born alone, away from them? I did not see Lord
Gauräìga, the best of avatäras. Why have I not died?
4. I am the grandson of Vaàçévädana Öhäkura, who was a dear
associate of the Lord. O Lord Gaura! O Lord Nityänanda! Why was the
misbehaved fool Rämacandra däsa not born then?

Song 143 (Dhänaçé-räga)

1. When will I visit the places where Lord Gauräìgs went? When will I
see Lord Gauräìgs's footprints? When will I become fortunate like this?
2. Lord Gaura is my master. Lord Gaura is the goal of my life. Lord
Gaura is my only treasure. If I cannot see Him I will give up this life
worthless like a pile of ashes.
3. My life breath will become like a bird. Flying in the sky, it weill go
to the place where Lord Gaura stays. I will always stay near the Lord. I
will be His servant.
4. Let the ashes of my body be sprinkled on the dust of Lord Gaura's
footprints. Rämacandra däsa says: There I will stay, overcome with bliss,
tasting the nectar at the lotus flower of Lord Gaura's feet.

Song 144 (Dhänaçé-räga)

1. In Lord Gauräìga's monsoon of ecstatic spiritual love every river,


canal, and watercourse is flooded with the waters of spiritual love. Now
everyone is plunged in those wtares of spiritual love. Alas! I am a
madman. My head is sick and broken. That is why I stay alone on this
dry hilltop. That is why my heart alone is not plunged in the flooding
waters of ecstatic spiritual love.
2. (Refrain) Hari! Hari! Gauräìga! Why have I become so fallen? O
Lord, please be kind to this beggar. This one time please cast Your
merciful glance upon him. Please give him the mahä-mantra of Lord
Hari's holy names.
3. You delivered Ajämila. You saved Jagäi and Mädhäi. You protected
Cäpala Gopäla. To the yavanas, melcchas, and caëòälas You gave
ecstatic love for the holy name. What offense have I committed that I
am so fallen and so far away from You?
4. I am very fallen. But You are the purifier of the fallen. O Lord,
please don't crush my hopes. Placing a blade of grass between his
teeth, unfortunate Vallabha däsa begs You for mercy.

the cakora-bird devotees sip!
5. Alas! I thought the worthless things in this world of birth and death
were my great treasure. I did not yearn to attain Lord Hari's feet. My life
will soon be gone, gone without any good thing come from it. That is
why Gokula däsa weeps.

4. My days and nights I passed in fruitless labor. I did not worship Çré
Çré Rädhä and Kåñëa's lotus feet.
5. I came to this world of birth and death to worship Lord Kåñëa.
Alas! I was bound by mäyä's illusions. I was made dull and stunted like a
tree.
6. My past karma pushed me into Kali-yuga's sins. In this life i did not
dive into the nectar of Lord Kåñëa's holy names.
7. O people, please worship Lord Kåñëa's holy names. All else is an
illusion. Don't walk by the path where Yamaräja will follow you.
8. Lord Kåñëa's name and Lord Hari's name are very sweet. He who
worships Lord Kåñëa is very wise.
9. He in whose ear Lord Kåñëa's name enters becomes free of sins. In

sufferings will flee far away. I will go to the räsa-dance arena on the
Yamunä's banks. There I will roll on the ground.
3. If I become fortunate I will see the Deity of Lord Krsna on
Govardhana Hill. Will I be able to do that? When will my body, mind, and
heart run to Rädhä-kuëòa and Çyäma-kuëòa?
4. I know the destination I will attain if I bathe in those two kuëòas
and die in the place around them. Rädhämohana däsa says: O Lord, You
are very merciful. Please grant me these perfections. In a voice choked
with emotion I beg this of You.

1. (Refrain) O Lord Hari, I have heard that You are the friend of
persons on the verge of death. I am a sinner. I am very ill-behaved. I
have no spiritual activities and no devotion. Now I am on the verge of
death.
2. Horrible old-age has come to me. My teeth and everything else are
all gone. Only my wicked material desires have not gone away. My hair
is white. Still I decorate this body with nice garments. O Lord, I have
become a fool, a madman.
3. I know this body is only made of clay. For some time the clay of
this body turns this way and that, but in the end it returns to the earth
from which it came. What a mistake I made! I carefully anointed this
body with sandal paste and fragrant oils.
4. If a person blind from birth falls into a deep hole, he is helpless.
Someone else must pull him out. In the same way if a person with eyes
to see falls into the well of this world of birth and death, he will drown
unless someone comes to save him.
5. O Lord Hari, I am tormented by the disease of living in this world of
birth and death. Your holy name is the medicine for that disease. This I
have heard from the scriptures and from the mouths of the saintly
devotees. O Lord Hari, I take shelter of You. To Gopäla däsa please give
the boat of Your feet. In that boat carry him to the farther shore of this
world of birth and death.

1. O saintly Vaiñëavas, please be merciful to me! Placing a blade of


grass between his teeth, a poor wretch speaks these words.
2. Please give to me the great treasure that is taking shelter of the
feet of the spiritual master and the lotus feet of Çré Kåñëa Caitanya.
3. Without your mercy I cannot attain thats helter. I am very
unqualified to attain that shelter. That is certain.
4. You are all kalpa-taru trees. You are oceans of mercy. I have faith in
that. That faith I keep in my heart.
5. I have no virtues. I stand at the apex of all offenses. If you can
deliver even fallen me, you will show your great glories to the world.
6. Therefore please kindly give to this Rädhämohana däsa the gift of
attraction to chanting the Lord's holy names. Please give to him a great
treasure of ecstatic spiritual love.

1. Rädhä's master enjoys very wonderful pastimes. A teenage boy


and a teenage girl have joined together in a single form, a form
manifest in Navadvépa.
2. Rädhä's master is very wonderful. Now He calls Himself by the
name Çré Caitanya. His form is splendid like molten gold. He is very
merciful to the poor fallen souls.
3. Rädhä's master has wonderful companions. His companions
include Lord Nitäi, Lord Advaita, Çréväsa, Svarüpa Dämodara, and
Rämänanda Räya.
4. O master of Rädhä, how can I describe Your pastimes with
Sanätana Gosvämé, Rüpa Gosvämé, Raghunätha däsa Gosvämé,
Lokanätha Gosvämé, Raghunätha Bhaööa Gosvämé, and Gopäla Bhaööa
Gosvämé?
5. O master of Rädhä, meeting with the devotees, You enjoy
pastimes of kértana. Overcome with ecstatic love, you dance. There is a
great tumult. You give everyone the gift of ecstatic spiritual love.
6. O master of Rädhä, I am very unfortunate. Why was I not present
at that time to receive Your gift of ecstatic spiritual love?
7. O master of Rädhä, I am very unhappy. I was not born at that time.
I did not attain the happiness of seeing You.
8. O master of Rädhä, what do I know to speak about You?
Gaurasundara däsa simply has faith that You will deliver him.

1. O master of Rädhä, I am afraid even to look. My bodily strength is


much less. My intelligence is destroyed. What do I know now?
2. O master of Rädhä, everything has gone away. My teeth are gone.
My digestion is gone. My hearing is bad. I do not see well.
3. O master of Rädhä, You are an ocean of mercy. But for You, who
will deliver me? You are the friend of everyone.
4. O master of Rädhä, I have told You everything. Now I am in the
grip of a fatal disease. Now I cannot remember anything.
5. O master of Rädhä, I am not afraid. Please be merciful and allow
me to serve the feet of Våñabhänu's daughter.
6. O master of Rädhä, I place this prayer before You. Please accept
me. Please make me a gopé maidservant at the feet of Våñabhänu's
daughter.
7. O master of Rädhä, that is my desire. Please make this
Gaurasundara däsa into a gopé, a gopé that in s secluded forest grove
has fallen in love with Your feet.

1. (Refrain) Shun, O my heart, people who have turned their faces


away from Lord Hari. Association with them will give birth to wicked
thoughts. Association with them will break into pieces your devotion to
the Lord.
2. Association with them will make you walk always on the wrong
path, will make you associate with women who are filled with lust, will
make the Yamadütas happy as they watch you from afar.
3. Therefore please shun the association of such persons. instead
please sip the sweet honey of lord Hari's holy names. Ah! Gopäla däsa's
heart has now become a bumblebee intoxicated by tasting the honey at
the lotus flower of Lord Hari's feet.

1. (Refrain) O my heart, please worship Nanda's son. O my brother,


please gaze at Him with great love. There is no shelter but Him.
2. What are wealth, followers, sons, and all else to you? O my heart,
please stay at Lord Hari's feet.
3. Always turn from bad association. Associate with the saintly
devotees. Very carefully chant the Lord's holy names.
4. Always be intoxicated by the singing the Lord's holy names and
glorifying the Lord's pastimes. Then you will attain the treasure that is
the Lord's feet. You will attain the goal of life.

not do anything that will keep me in the torments of this world of birth
and death.

1. (Refrain) O my heart, please turn away from the dualities of this


world. Always worship Çré Çré Rädhä and Kåñëa, who are sweet like
nectar, who are filled with bliss, and who delight the devotees.
2. O my heart, you are a fool. You do not know anything. You think
drinking the poison of fickle material sense gratification will make us
happy. Please know that in the course of time that poison becomes a
monster. It brings torment and death. It makes one blind.
3. O my heart, it is not right that you make me suffer in this way. You
and I have been friends from birth. Aware that material sense
gratification will bring only torment, you should meditate on the person
who is like an ocean of mercy.
4. Sip, sip the sweet nectar of love for His lotus feet. Throw far away
the sense gratification that becomes the root of torments. This
Rädhämohana däsa says: Turn away from the illusions of this world,
illusions that will keep us bound in this prison.

1. They who worship Lord Kåñëa attain the goal of life. Their lives are
fruitful. In the Vedas no one is their equal. In all the three worlds no one
is their equal.
2. They who do not worship Lord Kåñëa are the lowest of the low.
When they die Yamaräja will punish them. They will go to the hell named
Raurava, where they will be eaten by worms.
3. These persons are sinners. They are worthless like a pile of ashes.
In this world of birth and death no one is more of a sinner than they.
They have no good destination. They are bewildered. They work in vain.
4. I, Locana däsa, yearn to attain devotion to Lord Hari. I speak and
write of Lord Hari's glories. I will not even look at the face of anyone
who does not find delight in tasting the sweet nectar of Lord Hari's
glories.

1. To worship Lord Kåñëa I came to this world of birth and death.


Then Mäyä caught me in her net. Then I became dull and stunted like a
tree.
2. The vine of material love coiled and coiled around me. Manifesting
the form of a tree-boring insect, a woman entered my heart.
3. Manifesting the forms of fruits, sons and daughters grew on my
branches and fell to the ground. Manifesting the form of a bird, time
made its nest in my branches.
4. Gradually I became dry and withered. I could hardly stand erect.
Then the blazing forest fire of birth and death came.
5. Wicked desires and false hopes were the two streams of smoke
that at once arose. This Locana däsa called out, I am dying!
6. "Save me! Save me, O Vaiñëava Gosäi! Throw upon me the water
of your mercy and save me!"

1. Rädhä's beloved, who is the crown of rasikas, who enjoys pastimes


in the forest, who tastes the nectar of räsa-dance pastimes, and whois
rarely found in this world, is my dear Lord.
2. His crooked glances are sharp arrows that pierce the gopés'
hearts. He is the master of the gopés. He is the master of all the worlds.
He is the master of my life.
3. His hands are leaves and flowers in the vases of the gopiç' breasts.
His feet cut the bonds of repeated birth and death. The sages' hearts
yearn to attain Him.
4. He is the master of Gokula. Laughing and laughing, He stole the
gopés' garments. This Gokula däsa yearns to attain Him. Gokula däsa
meditates on Him night and day.

1. Hari! Hari! I will attain that state. The power of this horrible poison
will be broken.
2. I will renounce the joys of houshold life. I will take shelter of the
Bhägavatam that is Çukadeva's book and the many Bhägavatams that
are the Vaiñëavas.
3. I will reside in Vraja. A pathwork cloth around my neck and a bowl
in my hand, I will beg as a madhukari. In that way I will eat.
4. When will I spit far away the flames of material sense gratification
that burn in my mouth?
5. I will renounce my family, social station, pride, and everything
else. Ah! After how many days will Gopäla däsa's desire be fulfilled?

merciful to me! Again and again and again I beg: Please accept me as
one of Your associates!
2. O Lord, wandering in this world, I took shelter of many different
wombs. O deliverer of the fallen, please be merciful to me.
3. You are the savior of the worlds. You are the life of the worlds. O
Lord Rädha-ramaëa, please do not turn away from me.
4. You are the auspiciousness of the worlds. You are the master of the
worlds. What will happen to persons who turn from You?
5. I have carefully observed this world. O Lord, none but You can
deliver this Räma däsa.

the glories of pure unalloyed devotion to Lord Kåñëa.

1. In the Kali-yuga Çré Kåñëa Caitanya descended to this world. He


enjoyed kértana pastimes with khola and karatäla.
2. Chanting His own holy names, He rolled on the ground in ecstasy.
Going from house to house, He gave to everyone the gift of Lord Hari's
holy name.
3. For the benefit of the jévas, the Lord loudly wept in the ecstasy of
spiritual love. Giving them the gift of Lord Kåñëa's holy names, He
revived the jévas.
4. Tears of ecstatic spiritual love flowed from His eyes. His fair
spiritual form purified all the worlds.
5. His glorious face shone like the full moon. No one had ever seen
an ocean of mercy like Him.
6. Overcome with ecstatic spiritual love, His body trembled. Dancing
and dancing as He went, He chanted, Haribol!"
7. A kaupéna rested on His slender waist. Staggering and staggering
as He walked, He fell at Gadädhara's side.
8. Lord Gauräìga's ears never listened to anything but descriptions of
Lord Kåñëa. His heart was plunged in the nectar of songs glorifying Lord
Kåñëa.

from Lord Gauräìga's eyes. The Lord hugged the poor fallen souls.
10. He meditated on the loving pastimes He previously enjoyed with
His associates, pastimes He enjoyed as Lord Kåñëa. Who was the person
with a threefold-bending form standing before Him? He did not know.
11. He made the whole world float in the nectar of ecstatic spiritual
love. On the Gaìgä's banks He manifested the beautiful spiritual world of
Våndävana.
12. Brahmä, Çiva, and all the demigods search for Him. Thousand-
eyed Indra meditates on Him but cannot find Him.
13. He walked like a graceful intoxicated elephant. His gentle smile
was sweet. In His home Mother Yaçodä was present.
14. His charming form defeated Kämadeva. His handsomeness and
playfulness were without peer.
15. Everyone says that Lord Kåñëa, who was the son of Vasudeva
and the son of Nanda, has now become Çacé's son.

1. I take shelter of Lord Kåñëa, the master of all the worlds. I pray
that some day I will see Him with my own eyes. He is Lord Viñëu,
embraced by the goddess of fortune. He is the witness residing in the
bodies fo all moving and unmoving beings. He is supremely pure. He is
the killer of the demons. His eyes are lotus flowers. He holds a club,
conchshell, and cakra. He wears a glorious flower-garland. He is always
blissful and handsome.
2. I take shelter of Lord Kåñëa, the master of all the worlds. I pray
that some day I will see Him with my own eyes. From Him the sky, the
wind, the universes, and all else were born. With a fragment of His own
bliss He protects all the worlds. He killed the Madhu demon. At the time
of cosmic devastation with a single fragment of His power He removes
everything, taking it all within Him. He is all-powerful.
3. I take shelter of Lord Kåñëa, the master of all the worlds. I pray
that some day I will see Him with my own eyes. The yamas, niyamas,
senses, and all else rest within His heart. The wise philosophers see that
He is the supreme object of worship, the magician that has manifested
this world.
4. I take shelter of Lord Kåñëa, the master of all the worlds. I pray
that some day I will see Him with my own eyes. Standing in this world,
He controls the earth, although this truth even the earth itself does not
understand. This the Vedas declare of Him. He is the master of all the
nuniverses. He is supremely pure. He is the supreme controller. He is the
supereme object of meditation. He gives liberation to the sages,
demigods, and human beings.
5. I take shelter of Lord Kåñëa, the master of all the worlds. I pray
that some day I will see Him with my own eyes. By His power Indra and
the demigods defeat the demons. No one is independent of Him.
Nothing ever happens without His sanction. He removes the pride of
they who are proud of their learning or their victory over others.
6. I take shelter of Lord Kåñëa, the master of all the worlds. I pray
that some day I will see Him with my own eyes. A person who does not
meditate on Him becomes a pig or some other beast. A person who
does not know anything about Him becomes afraid of repeated birth
and death. A person who does not remember Him is born as a worm for
a hundred births. He is the all-powerful Lord.
7. I take shelter of Lord Kåñëa, the master of all the worlds. I pray
that some day I will see Him with my own eyes. He cuts into pieces the
fears and sufferings of the people. He is the best of all shelters. He is
the remover of illusions. He is dark like a raincloud. He is graceful and
handsome. He is the friend of the boys in Vraja. He is the friend of
Arjuna. He is self-born. He is the father of all who are born. To all who act
rightly He gives the gift of happiness.
8. I take shelter of Lord Kåñëa, the master of all the worlds. I pray
that some day I will see Him with my own eyes. Whenevr there is a
decline of religion and the people of the worlds are distrubed by
troubles, then Lord Kåñëa, who is the unborn master of the worlds and
the upholder of religious principles, manifests His form in this world. He
is the protector of the saintly devotees. He is effulgent, pure, and
handsome. He is glorified in all the scriptures. He is the master of Vraja.
